The Welsh Office assumed responsibility for the scheme in 1993. Payments were previously made, under the different scheme rules that were then in place, by the Intervention Board, as and when cattle were presented for slaughter or marketed with a view to slaughter.

Since the Welsh Office took over the scheme, payments began in the following months:

  • 1993: December
  • 1994: November
  • 1995: November
